arm around bebe netanyahu. he can check the box. he has been to israel as president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from the private conversations. i think obama brings two very tough, unpalatable messages to the israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force against iran's nuclear weapons program. and number two, you need to make more concessions to the palestinians to try and reach the two-state solution. so i think the private talks are going to be very, very tough. melissa: wow! so, given that, i mean let's move over to syria for a second. one of israel's top officials saying, it is quote, apparently clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obama administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed

. the problem is, sean, when you look at president obama, it seems he doesn't want to recognize limits to any government power. i think we should stand for limits on government power and individual liberty. >> sean: i watched your speech live at cpac, and great speech, by the way. and you got a rock star welcome there and even some votes. you've only been in the senate for three months and you got some votes for those who would like to see you the next president. there have been questions raised about are you eligible to run for president. you were born in canada? >> well, sean, i'll leave those questions to others to worry about. i've been in the senate now for ten weeks and i've got to tell you, we're in the midst of battle every day with folks coming after our liberties and so my focus is 100% on the u.s. senate and standing up and defending-- >> your mother was a u.s. citizen just to clarify. >> that's correct, my mom was a u.s. citizen so i'm a citizen by birth. >> sean: i think that i hear birther cries building on the left if you ever run. all right, senator, thank you for being with u
